Starting today, Heritage Middle School is participating in the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Pasta for Pennies/Pennies for Patients program; a service-learning program that gives our students the unique experience of working together to help raise awareness and funds in honor of thousands of children and adults fighting against blood cancers!
Our class goal is to raise $500!
We are asking that everyone join in this effort to benefit the mission of LLS: to find cures for blood cancers and to improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 9 minutes someone loses their battle. Thanks to the support of people like you, doctors are getting closer to finding a cure every day! In the 1960’s the 5-year survival rate for children under the age of 20 with ALL (the most common form of leukemia) went from a mere 3% to nearly 95% today! Your support is critical to help us find a cure and I hope you will join us in the fight against blood cancers!!!

**Another great way you can help us is by checking with your company to see if they will do a Matching Gift. Matching Gifts are a fabulous way to not only double contributions made toward the mission but also increase awareness among our community and local businesses. See if your company will match our classroom total!!
Our class is super excited about making a difference in the lives of other young people right here in our local communities. Thank you so much for supporting our efforts. For more information on the Pennies Campaign or other LLS Student Series Programs, please visit: http://www.studentseries.org/nc.
